Sweater Dresses & More

Hi friend! Welcome to a fresh, new week! We had such a good weekend and we’re heading into this week of Christmas break with so much gratitude for time off school with family and friends.

Our weather has been chilly, but bright and sunny, so perfect for enjoying time outside. What are you up to this week?

I’m happy to just be together and go to lunch, bake treats and play games. We’re also finishing up the last of our gift buying. Just a few more things to get before Christmas. If you need help with gift ideas for everyone on your list, you can find all my gift guides here.

With the colder temps, you may find yourself reaching for your coziest sweaters to fight the chill, but sweater dresses are a great option too.

I found several different styles in varying lengths, weights, and textures – and work to weekend friendly too!

Cable Knit Sweater Dress, Heels

DressHeels

This cable and ribbed knit sweater dress is a bit on the sassy side with the little above-the-knee slit, but it’s still quite tame. The “caramel” color I ordered looks more burnt orange in person, but it comes in a ton of other colors.

It has a lot of stretch and is easy to move in. Plus, it comes with the coordinating tie belt.

This dress hits me just above the knee and is on the lighter weight side. The wide belt is attached at the sides, drawing your waist in as you tie it. The shorter length is also balanced by the high neckline, making it appropriate for work.

This dress has a thicker weight to it with a more blousy top and fitted skirt. You could add a belt at the waist for added visual interest.

Here is the same dress in black with different shoes and a headband accessory. This would be an easy December date night outfit, especially with the knee high black boots.

If you love a monochromatic look, this “beige” dress and tan boots is so chic looking- although the color looks more ivory than beige to me. It’s a relaxed fitting sweater dress that I belted to help define the waist. It’s nice and soft feeling with drop shoulders and elasticized cuffs.

How fun is this dress?! While not a sweater dress, I thought it would be so fun for a holiday party with the sequin nutcrackers and gold sequin trim. Ali-Shaun and Tarah both wore it this weekend!

And for a cozy sweater option, this is a wonderful with the wide ribbed detail at the hem and cuffs. I paired them with a new pair of wide leg jeans from Loft.

These give you legs for days when you wear them with a tucked in top. And they’re 50% off as I type this!

Now I just need to see how much energy I have in the tank to pick back up my marathon training. I was down for about two weeks and plan to go for a run this week and see how I feel and where I’m at. If you have any tips for me, I’d love to hear in the comments.

Now let’s go kick Monday’s booty!

  1. HIMEGAN,

    I am a fellow Texan and have been following you for several years. I love your style. i am an XS can you give us petite girls some brands on Amazon that are available in XS? The sweater dresses in this post are cute but NONE in XS.

    Thanks for all the inspiration,
    Stacia

    1. I feel your pain Stacia! Most of the time sellers on Amazon have size small as their smallest size. If I find an XS I make sure to put that in the size reference.
